Halloween 2009 & Chuck E Cheese

I know I'm the last breathing blogger who hasn't finished blogging about Halloween yet, but I can't rest until I get it written down. (Okay, that's a lie. I've slept fine.)

On Halloween night we got the pleasure of heading to our neighbor's Halloween party/cookoff (Hi, Daphne!) As Andrew's mom, Debbie, and I were getting Drew ready for the party, Andrew decided it was imperative that our pumpkin get carved before the trick or treaters came to our house (where we would not even be located...).

The party started at 5. At 4:45, Andrew started carving his elaborate Scooby Doo Pumpkin. Ms. Debbie & I headed to the party sans Andrew at 5:30pm to enjoy DELICIOUS potato soup. Even picky little Drew partook in the meal. Andrew showed up about an hour later with a proud display of Scooby Doo Pumpkin iPhone photos. (Wish I had a picture to post. It turned out great!) *sigh* Husbands. Cant' live with 'em. Can't live without 'em. ;) (Just kidding, babe--love you!)

Instead of trick or treating this year, we decided to hit up Chuck E Cheese for the first time. Are we crazy or what? We thought it would be uncrowded, but we were wrong! Drew had a lot of fun, but mainly stuck to any game with a steering wheel.

Walking into a place like Chuck E Cheese with 200 sets of dirty hands and prevalent strains of the flu give me the chills. Good thing I had my handy dandy Lysol spray! Yep. I sprayed every one of those toys with Lysol before I let Drew touch them. Oh, I got laughs, but you know what? He didn't get sick from there, so it was worth the stares!

My verdict: we had fun, but Drew probably would have had just as much fun playing in our truck with the steering wheel. Andrew, however, got our money's worth. He had a BALL. I actually went to find him after 10-15 minutes of him being gone. Found him right where I suspected: the deer hunting game. Are we surprised? ;)

I hear ya about the Lysol! I have one of those cart covers for shopping carts for our Peanut. I was at Costco the other day and of course their carts are HUGE, so the cart cover doesn't entirely work. I had the disinfectant wipes with me and thoroughly wiped down the entire area of the cart that the Peanut could potentially touch and then proceeded to the cover the one half of the cart with the cart cover. I received lots of stares in the parking lot as well, but it IS so worth it. I may be paranoid but I don't care! :)

Jackie, I'm glad I'm not alone! I wipe those carts like it has swine flu all over it!
